Well ladies, there is officially no such thing as the ‘perfect man’. A study of 2,000 women found that three quarters of women believe that the perfect man doesn’t exist, whilst others only ranked their partners as 69% perfect.
Although this may seem like bad news at first, Nikki McReynolds, Marketing Director for Remington which commissioned the research, claims that the news it actually good – because it means women are being very realistic about their partners flaws.
The worst flaw a partner could have, according to the women, was not getting on well with her family. Using her toothbrush and leaving the toilet dirty came second and third respectively.
The survey also questioned what qualities would make the ‘perfect man’. Personality came out on top – with 35% of women rating a guy on his mind rather than his body. Humour was also important, but good looks and sharp style wouldn’t hurt either.
Spokeswoman Nikki McReynolds added: "It's clear that while guys may not be completely perfect, there are plenty of things they can be perfect in, in order to please their partner. As long as guys take the time to look after themselves, be attentive and keep up appearances then their partner will be willing to overlook the smaller pet peeves. The average guy may not be able to compete with the image of a David Beckham, and their partners don't expect them to - but there are still a number of small changes they can do to make a big difference."
And it was Becks who topped the poll of "perfect celebrity man", leaving the likes of low-scoring Alex Reid, Mark Wright and Gordon Ramsay with work to do.
